YOUNGSTERS at a Bradley school celebrated their achievements on the last day of term.
St Thomas’ CE Primary School is only two years old but in that time it has gone from strength to strength.
Instead of playing games or watching DVDs on the last day, the whole school celebrated together.
To mark good exam results, improved attainment and an expanding school roll, an oak tree was planted as a symbol of growing strength.
The school also unveiled a special stone inscribed Growing Together in Strength.
There were performances by various school groups including the Glee Club and the ballet class, and the day culminated in a flag parade to highlight the 30 nationalities at the school and each of the 420 children released a balloon.
Headteacher David Rushby said: “It was a really positive end to term.”
The idea for the day came from learning mentors Alison Pollard and Alison Killeen.
